I share it with my husband. He resurches the modification ideas he has for upgrades & we are on the same page before new mods are done.

We both enjoy driving it.

Amazing touches already, I'll be following this one as well...

Sounds like a good partnership! Hope you enjoy it for a long time to come! It's nice to be able to share a great hobby with the family.

My friends looked at me & said, "It's red! Don't you know the police like to pull over red cars?".

This car just said........"take me home with you, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!". None of the other Camaro's called our names.

I've recovered a bench in our garage & embroidered CAMARO on the seat cover. We might paint the wood black, we'll decide that this summer when the weather is warmer.

Last night I embroidered CAMARO on a blaket for our son to use.

I'll post pictures later.

Tonight we'll be talking about the parts we need to order.

The mods are about to begin. Husband ready? More than ready! Kids ready? You bet! Camera ready? Check. Am I ready???? I think so, I have a hard time looking at all the Camaro's being taken apart. Don't get me wrong, I have complete faith in the my husband & son-in-law working on my car, but I'm only use to seeing a Jeep all in pieces and always sucessfuly put back together. I guess I've seen our friends Mustang all apart being restored at our house, but it wasn't ours. But...the surgery is about to begin.

Yes, I will be out helping as much as I can. Time to hire a babysitter!

You know as soon as we start working on it the weather will be nice.... And I/we can't go out for a drive.

Parts ordered

Just ordered the BMR Level 3 from Phastek and stainless brake lines from Pedders. Now I just have to wait for parts to show up.

Also ready to order ARH long tubes and SLP loudmouth II but waiting for price.

Hopefully I will have this all together by the time the sunshine decides to come pack to the pacific northwest.

Very nice ride! Can't go wrong with red. I think painting the GFX makes the car look more stealthy.

The little things

Here is the picture of the bench cover I embroidered. I was having fun. It's not the right font, but for now I'm ok with that for now.

The decision we have to make is if we paint the wood black.

Monday, I took out a red blanket from the trunk...I had to play again. This will keep our son warm when we cruse with the windows down.

I'm looking into buying a font that's closer so I can embroider my other blanket.

This is going to be a LONG week, waiting for the parts to arrive.

Even longer...I have to wait until my husband brings them home from work. At least I know they won't be taken from our front porch (never had a problem, & don't want one either).

I'm going to have to ask my husband to wait so we both can open them at home. I know he'll want to check them out.

So MOMSREDSS goes in next week to the shop to have BMR suspension, ARH LongTubes, Loudmouth II and Pedders stainless brake lines installed.

We are also going to get a custom tune and a Dyno Run at the same time.

Since the car is a L99 we know we are going to have them turn off the AFM, shop recommended it as well. Any thoughts on other considerations?

Appreciate any comments.
